Hey everyone! Here's the interview I was able to do with Little Red Writing Hood herself. It was fun, and my first time interviewing ANYONE, so maybe the questoins come off a little generic. However, these are the questions I am most curious about when it comes to my fellow writers.
Okay here goes nothing!
PP(that's me!): When and why did you start writing?
LRWH(Little Red Writing Hood): It all started from when I was born.... just kidding, of course! I guess I started writing during the middle of my freshmen year in high school, when I was twelve-years-old. I had just moved to the Philippines in September and I was going through some rough times. I became homesick, alone and such a crybaby! I hated myself back then because I moped around and thought about the past way too much. I was too shy to talk to anyone so I didn't make a lot of friends then. Don't get me started at what was starting to happen in between my parents' families!
In order to escape all that, I hung out in the library to read a lot and eventually went to writing. Writing soon became a burning passion for me and I never want to give it up!
PP: What works have inspired you throughout your journey in the writing world?
LRWH: There have been some but I completely forgot them! Hmm. It was mostly the people behind them that inspired me, rather than their works.
PP: Tell us a little about a project you're currently working on.
LRWH: ...Now that's a hard question since I have no idea where I'm going with it and if I wrote down a summary, I wouldn't even understand it myself. I can tell you that it had been one of my very first WIPs since I started writing and it had stuck with me for a long time.
PP: What do you hope to inspire/convey to your readers with your writing?
LRWH: Dreams do come true? No, Disney stole that.
This is going to sound cliched but I really want to inspire readers to never give up, keep your imagination alive and you're never too old, or young, for anything (teenagers can go trick-or-treating too)!
PP:What do you absolutely need to have in order to write?
LRWH:Music. Definitely music. I like to write the emotions the songs convey and it really helps me keep in the flow with my WIP.
Thank you for interviewing me, Prerna! This has been an awesome experience :D
